Bachelors of Engineering in Geomatics Engineering


Geomatics is a systemic, multidisciplinary, integrated approach to selecting the Instruments and the appropriate techniques for collecting, storing, integrating, modelling, analysing, retrieving at will, transforming, displaying and distributing spatially geo referenced data from different sources with well-defined accuracy characteristics, continuity and in a digital format . Based on the scientific framework of geodesy, it uses terrestrial, marine, airborne, and satellite-based sensors to acquire spatial and other data.

Prior to mid 90’s, this program was known as “Surveying Technology”. “Geomatics” is a term that is currently used by educational institutions, governments and private industry. “Geomatics Engineering is the field of activity that integrates the acquisition, processing, analysis, display and management of spatial information. It is an exciting and new grouping of subj ects in the spatial and environmental information sciences with a broad range of employment opportunities as well as offering challenging pure and applied research problems in a vast range of interdisciplinary fields” [ Geomatics Engineering , From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia]. It goes beyond commonly known or traditional areas of surveying and mapping, and includes a much wider range of activities and the use of rapidly changing technologies that relate to collecting and managing information.

The economic growth of any country involves the development of natural resources, construction of large public works projects and the expansion of urban centers. This growth requires trained personnel to locate and map physical features on the land, determine property boundaries for titles to property, perform surveys to locate and build transportation systems and layout large industrial complexes such as refineries, dam sites, power, pipelines and surface and underground mining operations.

The Geomatics Engineering program emphasizes the use of new technology for data collection, Geomatics Engineering stands at the forefront of spatial and environmental information sciences, representing an innovative and multidisciplinary approach that integrates the latest technology in data collection, analysis, and management. This field draws upon the foundational science of geodesy and employs a vast array of instruments and techniques—from terrestrial to satellite-based sensors—to accurately collect, store, model, and disseminate geo-referenced data from diverse sources.

From Surveying to Geomatics: An Evolution

Historically known as Surveying Technology until the mid-1990s, the term "Geomatics" has since been adopted by educational institutions, governments, and industries worldwide to reflect the field's expansive scope and technological advancements. Geomatics Engineering transcends traditional surveying and mapping, covering a broad spectrum of activities that include the acquisition, processing, analysis, visualization, and management of spatial information.

A Catalyst for Economic Development

The role of Geomatics Engineering in economic growth cannot be overstated. It is instrumental in developing natural resources, constructing large public works, and expanding urban centers. The precise location and mapping of physical features, property boundaries, transportation systems, and large industrial complexes are essential for the efficient use of land and resources. Geomatics engineers utilize cutting-edge technology such as electronic measuring equipment, earth-orbiting satellites, and advanced computing to meet these needs.
